Red, White and Blue Meringue Crown
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Jane: "My meringue crown is a red, white and blue meringue crown with strawberry and raspberry compote. And then the next layer is blueberry compote, and then the top is white flesh nectarines with other fruits." 

Voice-Over: "Jane's red, white and blue pavlova is her husband Ray's favorite dessert. She's hoping that sticking with her tried and tested family favorites will be a hit with Paul and Mary."

Paul Hollywood: "You've made, from appearance point of view, a first rate meringue. It's held all its shape perfectly."

Mary Berry: "I can't wait to get the texture of that meringue. You know, it does look very impressive."

Paul Hollywood: "Oh, the way the knife just falls through. Look how solid it is at the bottom there as well."

Paul Hollywood: "Perfect, isn't it? The flavors go very well and your coulis is sharp. And you know what is really sharp? The peach on top, which is just what you need with a pavlova."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
